  • Scary, I watch Nancy Grace and Jane Valez, and my kids will too, so they know there are preditors out here and kids go missing and get killed everyday, so they will be better prepared and be cautious in their everyday living.

  • Most children are abducted by non-custodial parents. So if you aren't in the middle of a messy custody battle the chances of your child being abducted are very low. Stranger abductions are the most rare.

  • You are right justanotherjen, stranger abductions are very rare, however they do happen. The worst part is that family abductions are the high in this. Could you imagine a FAMILY MEMBER kidnapping your child?! OMG! I'd die! Among other things!

  • Our neighborhood has had about six attempted abductions this month, by two different men.
